A little down

I woke up a few times before 5:54 am, when I finally rolled out of bed. I was slow getting out the door – got to the park around 6:15 and sun wasn’t quite up yet.

Walk was okay. I tried jogging and decided I want to lose 30lbs (~14 kilos) before I attempt that endeavor again. My ankles burned and the weight on my knees made them feel unsteady. At some point I will have to add a little bit more intense exercise besides walking but at this point this is where I’m at and I’m grateful to be able to do it.

My mood has been low the past couple days. I feel some hopelessness and am having trouble finding enjoyment in activities. I’m hoping this is just a passing thing. I find as I’m writing this I’m not whipping away at the keyboard. I have to be mindful of my time so I can take a shower and eat breakfast.

With just a moment’s pause in typing I realized speaking with my daughter’s therapist and my no longer turning to food for comfort really explains it. So, yes, these low feelings are likely to pass. Well, I hope.

I wish I had something more upbeat and inspiring to share. For now I’ll just post some pictures of today’s walk:

As the sunrise comes later and later I’ll have to start walking later so I don’t walk in the dark.

Have a good day, friends.

About Quixie

Hi! I go by "Quixie." Quixie is a shortened version of "quixotic," which means: "exceedingly idealistic; unrealistic and impractical." It's how I described my evangelical Christian faith when I started blogging 7 years ago. Now I'm an agnostic atheist who is trying to find a balance between idealism and reality. I write about my mental health journey with bipolar disorder, my loss of faith (deconversion), parenting teens, reading, exercise/health, work-life, and my marriage separation/divorce.
